O Superman

Red SonThe BBC says there’s “something refreshingly shocking about Superman: Red Son“:

The book was published originally in DC Comics’ ElseWorlds line, which features stories that take existing characters and fling them into alternative scenarios (eg, having the baby Kal-El crash to Earth and be adopted by the Waynes, then grow up to be a superpowered Batman). Scottish writer Mark Millar’s intriguing scenario here is to have baby Supes arrive, not in the heartlands of America, but in the Ukraine.

Action Comics #1 In other Superman news, someone has uploaded images of the original Action Comics #1, Superman’s debut.

Buying an original copy will set you back $75,000. I believe Action Comics #1 is reprinted in this collection, but correct me if I’m wrong. (Via Bookninja.)
